Why Study in Dubai?

CUD is in the heart of Dubai, at City Walk. Dubai is one of the fastest growing cities in the world. Its economy is accelerating - life is enjoyed by thriving multi-ethnic expatriate and student communities. The cosmopolitan city makes it an attractive choice of city for many. Dubai is rapidly transforming into a technology-driven, global digital capital. And moreover, is one of the safest cities in the Middle East.


An abundance of activities in Dubai attracts many expats and tourists from around the world – entertainment, beautiful beaches, an array of fine cuisine, and a wide range of adventures: water sports, parachuting, 4X4 dune bashing, camel riding, waterparks, skyscrapers and more...

“When I have free time, it is great to meet up with my friends at the campus – it sings with fun and engaging activities. I joined the Football Team. There is so much to do – I enjoy the music room, podcast facility, and pin-pong festivities.” Ahmad Masri, Psychology Student at CUD

Many spectacular events take place in Dubai which celebrate global innovation and achievements. The vibrant student life at CUD and in Dubai is extended into CUD’s notorious annual graduation ceremonies. The university has continuously set a precedent in the realm of higher education as the first university to celebrate the commencements in extraordinary ways.






Great pride has been taken to pioneer astounding graduation ceremonies: the prestigious Dubai Opera (2018), Dubai World Trade Centre (2019), the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa (2020), and recently at the Expo 2020 Dubai (2021).

CUD is one of the leading choices for many students pursuing their higher education in Dubai – to obtain a world-class Canadian education and simultaneously thrive and advance throughout a fulfilling learning adventure.

Shaping champions for the future.
